I am just wondering if anyone here had mets from this cancer? If so, where did it go? I am in the process of following up on some scarey scan results.

If any are believers, I could really use lots of prayers! I do believe in miracles!

Sending thoughts and prayers to you.  St. Peregrine is th patron saint of cancer patients and St. Rita is the patron saint of the impossible, both have seen me through this journey.  I will include you in my prayers to them.  I too believe that miracles happen.   I hope alll works out for you.  Reading all your posts on this site have been a huge help to me...you are a very special person.

Tracey, I too am a Catholic. I appreciate the prayers very much.

Thank you to everyone for your caring thoughts and prayers.

Martha, looking at liver and lung issues.

All the discussion about not having scans to minimize radiation exposure. It has been 2 years and I wish I had the scans sooner.

I am not a very lucky person!

That is the one downside to not having periodic scans.  If there are mets, no number of DRE's or anoscopes are going to catch that, unfortunately.  I am still saying prayers for you that whatever is showing up turns out to be benign.

You have and will continue to be on my prayer list. I believe that God challenges us and tests us time and time again, hold fast and strong to your faith and you will be ok. I know its easier to say the words than to live by them sometimes so just know that we are here for you too.

I am sorry to hear this and hope that you will find out what's going on ASAP and that it's not mets.  To answer your question, mets typically are found in liver or lungs with anal cancer.  I believe there have been a few rare cases that have metatasized to bone.  I hope you don't have to deal with any of those.  You'll be in my prayers.

I'm sorry to see that you're having to look at  scary scan results.  I can't imagine what it's like for you as you follow up with your drs.  I wish you all best as you tackle this new challenge.  I'll be thinking strong healing thoughts for you.

I had mets to the liver when cancer was discovered.  Will be 2 years in August.  Prayers is what has kept me here.  I too will pray for you.

Did they do surgery on your liver or are the mets still there?

I am so touched by the kind thoughts and prayers. I have meetings next week. Until then, I am trying to stay positive and lots of prayers. I am grateful to be able to come here and express my fears and anxieties. I am so worried about my daughter having to deal with any more pain.

Thanks so much for the prayers!

You wil be on my and my church prayer list.  Very powerful prayers are given there in this charming Episcopalian church along the Hudson River in Irvington, NY. They managed to rejuvinate my dog, Albert's kidneys which failed after he scarfed down a bunch of Advil. The vet said it was nothing short of a miracle. They did well for me too:-) I think if nothing else, it helps to know others are carrying heartfelt caring in prayers up to God for us, don't you?

Love,

Sandy

Thank you so much. I have great faith in the power of prayer. I appreciate every single prayer. What else is there, really? You are very kind and I appreciate it. The appontment has now been moved a few more days further. I am trying not to feel fear and anxiety. I don't want to give up now and I won't.

Mary,

I know that you are a believer.  I want you to know that what it says in the Bible in Rev 12:11 is how you will overcome this new challenge that is confronting you. Most of the battle is in our minds. My testimony is that I have personally seen people in my life with a terminal stage 4 diagnosis that are cancer free 8 years later later at the age of 80 and still on the ski patrol!  My personal testimony is with the pain that came along with receiving treatment for AC.  I was is the final weeks of treatment and having excruciating pain. As you may remember, I worked the whole time of treatment and recovery and actually changed jobs with a different employer the last week of treatment.  Anyway, I was on my way to work after a radiation appointment and I suddenly realized that He had already dealt with my pain over two thousand years ago. I started talking to Him right then and reminded myself that the pain was not mine to suffer. I got to work and continued with my day.  The pain disappeared and I never had to take one pill for pain during the treatment and recovery. I of course took care of myself as the oncologists had taught me to do with baths and ointment. 

So this weekend remind your mind when it starts going nuts, that this has already already been handled by Him because He loves you with an infinite Love.  I'm praying for you my friend.

Thank you. You have moved me to tears and I do remember how well you did. I will try to stay in faith! I am just a little weary, but I will remember your words. So true.

More prayers being sent your way.  Scans show all kinds of funky things, cysts, hemo...something or other, etc., all of which my oncologists tells me are part of the aging process.  I'm praying that your scan results are nothing more than that as well.

Blessings,

Liz

Thank you. From your lips to God's ears. I am trying to stay positive, but for the first time in my life, I am fighting anxiety. Thanks for the positive thoughts and prayers.

Those thoughts are not facts! Something weird is going on, but that is why it's being investigated. No one knows as yet what is going on! So hold on to that, go & breathe in the summer air, watch the workd go by. Use meditation and use destraction (even Candy Crush if that floats your boat), & this too will pass. Thinking about you and wishing you the best. Liz

I am trying to get everything done in case the news is bad. By the way, what is candy crush? That made me smile.

My thought and prayers are with you. You've become a very important person on this forum. We don't want anything to happen to you.

I believe Candy Crush is a game, maybe for the Ipad? If you've got an Ipad (and remembering how Angry Birds helped keep your mind off things) also try CrossMe Color and Fairway HD - they're lots of fun and may help keep the mind busy and away from the dark thoughts.

All my best,

Rose

Thanks for the game tips! Who would think a baby boomer like myself would find such solace in computer games. I do need the distraction they provide! I will give those games a try! I am going to have some long days at the hospital next week.

Candy crush is a game app for iphone/pad or android! Warning! Can be addictive! But also vey useful for times like these! It's a strategy I am using whilst waiting for my scan results (node did not respondcto treatment......think I said before) . Use whatever helps, even getting things in order too, Liz

Thank you for your kindness. Isn't it strange reflecting on life, at times we thought were so very stressful. Comparatively, those times were a minor irritation!  And breathe! In.......out, different breaths, different depths. I have a prearranged appointment with oncologist tomorrow. My scan was last Friday. Yesterday her secretary phoned to say onc wanted to see me tomorrow. 'Oh! You have an appointment already! ' Me.....'is there something wrong with my scan?'. Sec 'No'.  The panic sets in. Despite my overt calm, I am having paalpitations, They just don't think do they? We hold onto every word......

Yes, cancer certainly puts things in perspective. We now know what matters. For me, all that matters is the people that we have loved. Our children, families, dear friends. You are in my thoughts. Stay calm and steady. All will be well, my mantra.

Sorry for the delay in respondingd but I was on vacation.  I no longer have mets to the liver.  Chemo killed the tumor in my liver but left a "spot"  on scans.  I choose the aggressive approach and had a liver resection to remove the dead tumor.  I have been cancer free almost 2 years.  As many of you know, I also lost my mother and husband during treatment and am raising grandchildren.  I had many, many people praying for me and the good Lord answered those prayers.  I feel like a walking miracle that I am still here and am a proud example of the power of prayer.  I will pray for you.

I grew up in a communist country and there they never allowed any religion or spirituality. Plus the school system is all about science, reason and proof.

However in the last couple of years way before my cancer diagnosis I started moving closer to God. I'm still just slowly and carefully opening my heart to him, but at least I'm on my way.

I believe in good and the well-wishes and prayers of good people around you (and by the way the effect of this was scientifically proven.)

So I wish you all the best and I offer all the support I can give.

Laz
